Dwarf Fortress - Boatmurdered

by Various

Part 24: by Bremen

Somewhat of an anti-climax, it was a calm and uneventful winter.

The new military trains hard at the archery range. I only have a few short months to hammer a collection of peasants into a disciplined and capable army.

Inspiration is provided by the huge numbers of elephants loitering just outside the walls with blood in their eyes

Spring has come, and with it's coming I've decided to retire and become leader of the armed forces. Memories of the great elephant slaughters haunt my dreams, and only with a crossbow will I ever find peace.

The defenders of Boatmurdered!

Did my former ruler make it, or was he one of the lemmings who ate it against the elephants?

You not only survived, but you've become an insanely leveled out dwarf (legendary in two skills and every stat maxed out). I so wanted to draft you into the military as an uber swordsdwarf in steel plate, but I didn't want to get any more former rulers killed.
